Ghana Police, Presidency, Parliamentarians, and Judges rated as the most corrupt in the latest Afrobarometer
The latest Afrobarometer report released by CDD-Ghanas has placed the Ghana Police Service as the most corrupt state institution followed by the Presidency.
The research found that the Police’s score of 65% placed it at the top of the chain while the Presidency followed in the second position with 55%.
The report also placed members of Parliament as the third group of people in the pack with a score of 54%.
The data also revealed that positive ratings of the President’s performance declined by 31 percentage points between 2019 and 2022, from 61% to 30%.
The list was followed by Judges and magistrates, tax officials and the Electoral Commission.
This was made known at an event in Accra organised by the CDD-Ghana.
The project bordered on democratic governance, trust in institutions and corruption.
The research sampled nationally representative respondents of adult citizens selected at random.
The sample size of 2,400 people was distributed across regions/states/provinces and urban/rural areas in proportion to their share in the national population.
Fieldwork for Round 9 in Ghana was conducted from 4th to 20th April, 2022.
According to the report, trust in the Presidency declined also by 25% between 2019 and 2022.
The study further revealed that the Ghana Armed Forces, religious and traditional leaders, and the courts were the most trusted institutions in Ghana.
